Who is Joan Lin?

Joan Lin Bio: Early Life, Family, and Education
Growing up in Taipei was rather hard for Joan; being the second of five children, Joan had to leave school when she was only 12 years old, as her family was poor and she had to find a job to provide for them. She decided to try herself in the show business, particularly acting, and it eventually turned out to be a rather smart move.
Determined to rise above the poverty that her family lived in, young Joan started auditioning for roles in Hong Kong and Taiwanese films. It was in 1972 when she was 19 years old that she made her acting debut in the kung-fu film “The Hero of Chiu Chow”, and stunned the critics and casting producers which resulted in new leading roles. Gradually, Joan’s career improved and she became more popular, more so after 1976 when she starred in the popular comedy film “Coffee, Wine & Lemon Juice”, next to Han Chin and Chuan-Ju Wang.

Now that we have covered all the major details about Joan, let’s share some information about her son.

The son of Jackie and Joan, it was only a matter of time until he launched his own career, however, he was primarily focused on education, finishing high school firstly, and then enrolling at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, but his poor grades stopped him from continuing, and Jaycee launched his career instead. He started as a singer, releasing the debut album “Jaycee” in 2004, but then became more focused on acting, and starred in such films as “The Drummer” in 2007, and “Mulan: Rise of a Warrior” among others. Back in 2014, he was arrested for drug possession and spent six months in jail. Since coming out Jaycee has starred in the film “Railroad Tigers”, and is now working on the film “The Diary”.

In addition to a rather rich filmography, Jackie has released 12 studio albums.
The son of Charles and Lee-Lee Chan, refugees from the Chinese Civil War, Jackie went to Nah-Hwa Primary School, but he failed in his first year, so his parents withdrew him from school, and it was in the early ‘60s that he started his rigorous training in martial arts and acrobatics at the China Drama Academy, a Peking Opera School, run by Master Jim-yuen.
